Happiness is like a song
Angels cannot help but sing,
Praising Heaven loud and long,
Pleased to make the heavens ring.
Yet though we may not angels be,
Vested in our hearts is love,
An angelic melody
Like those sung rapturously above.
Each of us is lit with longing,
Needing both to get and give,
To feel the beauty of belonging
Inundate the life we live.
Nor is my joy an angel's joy
Except your love my spirits buoy.
